Suffolk Dredging tractor - stock code 6222

I've had several dredging tractors in over the years - always impressed because they go rather better than their appearance would suggest - but this is the first one to arrive with the set of dredging buckets that John Haining designed to go with the engine, they make an interesting addition and just the thing if your fish pond's silted up.

Silver soldered copper boiler, 80psi working pressure, feed by injector and mechanical pump. Two cylinder vertical engine, cast iron cylinders with slide valves actuated by Stephenson's gear with pole reverser, mechanical lubrciator. Steams freely and engine runs well, gears are noisy.

Length 38 inches
Weight approx 300 pounds

scale 3 inch
